A bold statement between two towering obelisks: A spherical sculpture by Fritz Koenig flouted the hegemony of the straight line, provocatively declaring itself between the World Trade Center buildings. It was one of several abstract outdoor sculptures that made a stand in the mid-’70s. “Among the confusion and hustle of the city, they make a statement,” The Times quoted Doris Freedman, former head of the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs. “They assert an individual presence, they humanize the impersonality of the city,” she said.

An eerie vision from October 1970, when the World Trade Center became the world’s tallest building. A 38-foot wall was added to the top of the 100th floor, making the tower four feet higher than the next tallest structure, the Empire State Building, before it reached its full height that December of 1,370 feet. But, it almost goes without saying, from our contemporary vantage, these beams being put into place summon the iconic image of the ground floor structure standing after the towers had collapsed around it, 31 years later.
